His exceptional performances in the UK, Europe and North America received unprecedented praise from both critics and fans across the globe.
"George proved he is simply one of the best vocalists this country has ever produced." The Sun
"King George still reigns supreme" Mail on Sunday
"a masterclass in pop genius" The Observer
"A tremendous singer, a complete showman. All George Michael needs is a mic, his songs, and the magic on stage is instaneous" La Parisien
"As he closed with the still stirring 'Freedom', his hands raised high, testifying like an evangelist for self determination. Then he was on his knees, giving the 'I'm not worthy' bow several times towards his fans. His crowds roared back, still dancing to the music, suggesting that maybe he was." Rolling Stone
